    Stacey & Scott, I was shocked and so saddened by the news of your mother’s passing. I know my mom will miss her terribly. She was always there for my mom and such a wonderful friend to her. We will miss her, but remember her with fond memories. Your families will be in my prayers.

    We are so sorry to learn of your mothers passing. I will always remember the good times we had watching you and Russ play basketball, Scott. We spent many hours sitting on those bleachers together. You and your families will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Scott and Stacey, as far as I know we have never met. My parents are Dennis and Mary Ellen Harris. My grandparents were Elouise and Fred Harris. I have known your mom since I was little. She and your Aunt Joan came up and visited my brother Todd when he was in the hospital. My parents would visit your mom when they would come to the covered bridge festival. Your mom and your cousin Megan came to the viewing and funeral of my oldest brother Todd when he passed away a couple of years ago. It was such a shock to hear of her passing. She was a wonderful person and she will be greatly missed. Know that our thoughts and prayers are w/you at this time. It is hard to loose someone you love, it is even harder when it is so sudden, and around this time of year. She will be celebrating Christmas in Heaven w/Jesus and God this year and hopefully she will see my brother up there. Take care and we will continue to pray for you.

    To all of Janette’s Family and Friends,
    Janette will be missed by me and all of her fellow classmates of ’59. I know she really enjoyed her family and emailed me a lot about her “wonderful, sweet, intelligent, talented and beautiful” grandchildren.
    So sorry for your loss of a wonderful mother, sister, and grandmother.

    Scott and Stacey,
    You and your families will by in my thoughts and prayers. I have a lot of fond memories of my childhood that are associated with being at the Wilson home.

    I am *so* sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I would not have recognized it from the paper until we had dinner with John and Wanda Huston last night, and Wanda told me that you and she are related, and that this was your mom.
    How difficult for you, right before the holidays.
    I would love to keep in touch with you….all I know is the paper said you live in Noblesville. I work in Westfield at Stitches N Scones on Mondays and Thursdays. When you get a chance, if you could email or call me, I’d love to get together for coffee, or whatever. 765-894-0758 blaclav@yahoo.com
    Please know that you are in my prayers, that God will send you His perfect peace. Praise Him that we have knowledge of eternal life, and know that we will be with our precious ones in heaven one day!
    Love and prayers, Bonnie

    Stacey and Scott,
    My prayers and my family’s prayers are with you both. Like so many other parents when we were growing up your mom was “our” mom. I have a fond memory of being in your home on leave from the service and talking and laughing till 3 in the morning with you and your folks. Your mom and your family will always be bookmarked in my life.
    God Bless,
